Rated 5 out of 5 by from Me again. Also I did the tail in marshmallows as suggested. But next time I think I will do a pound cake and carve it. I prefer as much cake as possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had great success with my "Meet Spike! Cake." I made this for a four year-old boy's birthday, and his parents were thrilled with how the cake came out. I followed the instructions dead on, and everything was fairly easy; the hardest part is shaping the marshmallows just right for the tail, but it is definitely achievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was so much fun to do. I was surprised at how easy it was. Just follow the instructions and use your imagination. I didn't have the mini ball pan so I used the mini wonder mold pan, just had to do a little carving but not to much. He turned out great. Give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cake idea. Did one in green and one in blue for my twin's 2nd birthday. They were a hit. I would suggest making the spikes slightly longer than the pattern so that they can be inserted into the cake far enough to be stable. Make extras too.
